Destination guide

Ocean Park offer a slice of tranquility

While Condado magnetizes tanning bodies and cocktail sippers throughout the whole year, Ocean Park is content to take a back seat. The gleaming white condos and the Ocean Park vacation rentals here overlook a much more chilled section of the San Juan city coast. The brown-beige sands and lapping waves are always quieter than their casino-backed compadres to the west, but there's still plenty of scope to unwind and relax in style. The trade winds bring surfers, too, while the delights of greater Santurce barrio include art museums and hipster shopping strips.

Things to do

Art aplenty in Ocean Park

If you think you can pull yourself away from the glimmering sands that run along the front of those Ocean Park vacation rentals for a spell, then you can delve into the artsy, cultural treasures of the Santurce area of San Juan. That's got the acclaimed Museum of Art of Puerto Rico, which has several floors bursting with Caribbean works and exhibits that reveal the interfacing between Spanish and US cultures in the island art scene. The Puerto Rico Museum of Contemporary Art is the place to go for more cutting-edge and avant-garde works.

Activities

Enjoying the beaches of Ocean Park

Book one of the Ocean Park vacation rentals on the beach and you'll be staying just steps away from the long, powdery sand stretch that makes this northern fringe of Santurce such a hit. Locals love it because it's a little quieter than the palm-backed places elsewhere along the Puerto Rican capital, while the blustery trade winds bring windsurfers to ride the whitecaps. A walk to the south will bring you to the shopping strips of Santurce proper, and all the tasty Carib grills and Tex-Mex of Calle Loiza.

Weather

Discover Ocean Park at its best

The weather in Ocean Park follows the exact same tropical pattern as the rest of Puerto Rico. The summer months between June and September can be wet and humid, ushering in storms from the Atlantic Hurricane belt. And while you could come then if it's just the cultural treasures of San Juan you're after, the months between November and April are better for booking Ocean Park vacation rentals for the warm sands and the lapping waves of the beachfront.

Natural features

Washed over by waves in Ocean Park

Ocean Park sits nestled between 2 of San Juan's most popular beachside neighborhoods: Condado and Isla Verde. It's got its own little stretch of yellow-brown sand to flaunt, although the locals seem content to keep this one for themselves _ Ocean Park remains a hidden jewel for those who don't like to share those sunbathing spots with anyone else. The Atlantic waves are a little lighter here than elsewhere, too, meaning it's good for refreshing swims. And then there are the sunsets and sunrises _ beautiful when viewed from the balconies of high-rise Ocean Park vacation rentals.
